I don’t know where this takes you but we had to go through multiple gates with guards and everyone thought we were trying to find the Esperanza hotel. Never found the trail.

A little up and down and steep at parts, but a really pretty hike with great places to stop and spend some time along the way. Is a little easy to get off the trail.

Enjoyably quiet trail which takes you most of the way to San Pancho/ San Francisco. There are a number of offshoot trails which run alongside the main trail from Sayulita and it’s easy to pick the wrong one. They all lead to the same place at the end of the day but may add a little length to the trail with some extra switchbacks. The final section on the way to San Pancho is fairly exposed and runs alongside the highway.

There is a lot of garbage along what could be an amazing trail. For me the trash was too much to allow enjoyment of the natural beauty which is present.

Drove from San Diego to attempt this hike only to find that it's in on the outskirts of town in a sketchy area. The only parking is on a dead end street with no visibility putting your car at risk. We decided to park on the highway and were immediately approached by the local police. They warned us that there is a high rate of break-ins and much criminal activity in the area. He made it clear that it was not a good idea to leave our car parked in that area.

Good trail out of Sayulita. Only scary part is ten minutes while on highway. Great views other wise!

AMAZING. I personally didn’t find this a hard trail but others in the group considered this an easy-moderate hike. Had a few snacks and plenty of water with us which we were glad we took, but also a restaurant you can stop at for a drink and snack/food (another gourmet restaurant also but believe it’s reservation only and it’s minimum $50 USD) along the way. Hiked the trail from boca to las animas beach. Unreal views of the water throughout the whole hike and we really took in the surroundings and local environment. Took our time throughout and stopped in for a drink at the restaurant “Maraika” before arriving at the beautiful white sand beach right after (called Los Caballos Beach). Swam for 45 minutes in the clear blue water before walking over to las Animas and catching a boat ride back (approx $20-50 pesos/person). Around a 1-3 hour day depending if you took your time or hiked straight through to the beach. HIGHLY recommend if you’re in the area. Lots of tourists we ran into who do it every time they’re in PV. (Also, bring bug spray! Never got a bite but also sprayed thoroughly with good quality bug spray)

Nice walk, short with some stairs. Go early in the day as there is very little shade and is very hot by 10am. Be prepared to pay 10 peso for washroom at the bottom.

Great jungle hike from the north end of the main beach in Sayulita to San Pancho. There are a couple different pair that you can take, but they end up at the same place. You exit through private property, but this appears to be the only way. Warning: this does require that you walk for about a quarter-mile on the side of the highway with no shoulder. You will have to step off the road when bigger vehicles come by. It is very narrow, so walk quickly and you can get through the section in six or seven minutes.

150 peso fee to hike. A short walk on a downward slope to the waterfall. Bring your bathing suit and go for a dip in the cool water.

I live in El Centenario near this area. I would not call this a trail so much as a desert road. Very stark and would be a very long, hot slog most of the year. The "river" mentioned is an arroyo. Like most arroyos here it is dry 99 percent of the time and treacherous during thunderstorms. Also filled with sand and very tiresome to walk in. Lot's of beauty to be found in this area but I can't recommend this as a hike. No facilities or water, very limited emergency response.

This is a fantastic hike, fairly rigorous with fantastic coastal vistas and beaches. We took a cab to Boca where our driver found the trailhead. We hiked about an hour to a beautiful little beach where there is a Restauraunt called Ocean Grille. (About an hour in). We made reservations the night before on dining app. Reservations for 11,12,and 1 only. Be sure to book. It was fantastic gourmet food and beautiful setting. Expensive but worth it. $80 for 2. After a swim we hiked to Los Animales. The path is up and down a little rugged but well maintained. Fantastic rocky / beach spots with some strong surf. Great picture taking vistas. Las Animales is about 1:20 from ocean grille. We took a water taxi back to Boca $100 pesos for 2. This is a beautiful hike that I wouldn’t miss.

excelente rura para entrenar y meditar!!

Sometimes we were not sure if we were on the trail. The ocean views made it worth it.

This is the trail up to the beautiful monarch butterflies. We were here in January and there were hundred of thousands. The hike is about 45 min straight up the mountain. It’s breathtaking in every way. So worth it. You do need to have a guide to go up.

Good trail for families with a good number of stairs which makes it a good workout. Went on Christmas Eve and the trail was pretty crowded. Views at the top of the lighthouse are amazing!

Este es de mis lugares favoritos en la sierra de Querétaro, debes seguir media hr en auto y al llegar al poblado de Cuatro Palos te estacionas, para subir al mirador a pie solo te registras y pagas $20 pesos por persona. Al llegar la vista es hermosa, recomiendo ir en la madrugada para que te toque ver el mar de niebla al amanecer.

This is a wonderful trail, steep but easy to walk. On the way we found a spring of fresh and clean water, we could not resist the temptation to drink it and refresh ourselves with it. The waterfall and the views are amazing! This is a fantastic place to enjoy alone or with the family.

Not a trail!!! Not sure the person who reviewed before actually hiked this. It’s a dirt road with no views.
